 We stayed 4 nights at this lovely site, very helpful staff, we pitched in the field by the railway line,

It was fun to see the train go by and everybody waving, good walks around the area,

Toilets and showers very clean, the site was busy but still had plenty of room, never waited to shower,

Shop no longer in use but we were given a big bag of tea bags by the owner that lasted the 4 days (life saver as we forgot ours),

We will use this site again,

 Very happy with this site, child friendly, great little park for our young ones to play on.

Toilet and shower block also good. Enjoyed a shower there, lovely hot water and nice and clean.

Great laundry area. We enjoyed watching the steam train chug past, just wish we could of boarded it from the cute little station on site and that it wasn't so expensive to travel on it. (we didn't, sadly, as it would of cost a lot with our 5 children).

Lovely surroundings, lovely caravan park, very clean n tidy throughout.

Only 2. 5miles from the beach, which we went to each day.

All in all, we happy we chose this family orientated camp site.

Many thanks.

Reviewer: Trevor + Jo 118 reviews from this member

 We chose this site on the strength of reviews from other UKcampsite users and once again, we were not disappointed.

The tent field is level and sheltered, but still with views to the nearby hills.

The Talyllyn steam railway runs adjacent to the site and this adds a certain charm as you hear the trains passing by.

The facilities are very good and kept spotless with routine cleans performed throughout the day and night! Reassuring during COVID-19 restrictions. My only slight criticism would be that the shower cubicles are a little small, but again the water is hot and they are very clean, so possibly being a bit picky.

Patrick, the owner, set up a large screen tv and sound system in 'the garage' so we could enjoy a shared Euro football experience with other guests. Really appreciated this!

Loads to do nearby:

Walking: Climb Cadair Idris, Birds' Rock or the Precipice walk (Dolgellau)

Towns: Aberdovey, Borth and Barmouth

Castles: castell y Bere

Trains: Talyllyn steam railway, or better the mainline from Machynlleth to Barmouth

Pub: Hotel at the end of the Tal-y-llyn lake for the view!

Food: Holgates Honey ice cream, Tywyn!

 Very scenic.

Peniarth Arms at bryncrug is twenty minutes walk and good food and well priced.

Great base for tywyn, Barmouth. Next to the tallylyn steam railway.

Site was quiet. Shop on site no longer opening. No complaints.

Well priced and enjoyed our stay.

 I thought that this must be the nicest site in Snowdonia. The owners are lovely people, very friendly.

Lovely views from the site. Free choice of pitch. Toilet facilities very good and nice and clean. TV room for wet weather!

The site virtually has it's own railway station as the Tallyllyn Railway passes by the site, very convenient, and a unique attraction for visitors.

Very well situated for touring and close to mountain walks (from the site on foot).

I will certainly be going back when I visit Snowdonia next year.

 Fantastic campsite. Just got back and I'm pleased to say it's just as lovely as I remember! Set down a country lane, just a few miles from Tywyn it's in a perfect location with the hills around you. The little steam train passing occasionally and the stillness of the location certainly puts you at ease.

The facilities are great with hot water, showers and play area (I did have a go on the swing when no one was looking) were great and the staff are very welcoming. The on-site shop sells fresh eggs / milk and a few goodies while the Co-op in Tywyn covers everything else.

The beach in Tywyn is lovely and a short drive to Aberdyfi is also a must. There's a car boot every Sunday in Tywyn and it's market day in Machynlleth on a Wednesday to have a look around.

We were reluctant to leave and will definitely continue to recommend the campsite to friends and family - especially the steam train and seeing the stars in fine form at night!

 Stayed here in the summer and was attracted by the train running through the site.

Beautiful quaint well kept site, we got a fab pitch with views to the train passing and a train station on site, our little boy loved it. Quite a few seasonal and statics. Lovely stream running though the site.

I found Tywyn quite remote, I wasnít prepared for the long journey when we booked, the roads are fine, we took a short cut through a village and that was ok, we came from Lancashire and drove through Llangollen and Bala, the roads are less windy with a caravan and there are plenty of lay-bys.

I hadnít brought much food with me and the on site shop wasnít really a shop, they sold milk and sweets, maybe washing up liquid. The next shop is literally co op in Tywyn, you have to drive to it, itís a small supermarket, with little choice and high prices - Iíd recommend stocking up before you come and only use co op if you run out of something.

We went down to the beach area one day, there wasnít much to do, just a walk on the promenade really. There is an ice cream factory that sells honey ice cream which is worth a visit.

Dol idris is a beautiful nature reserve, and Corris craft centre worth a visit, we also did the Talyllyn railway trip, which was the highlight, with lovely walks and a play area at the stations. We disturbed a bees nest when walking between stations which is another story!

The toilets and showers were clean and light. Spacious pitches. Helpful owners. We saw them siting a van for a family who were struggling. Stunning place and lots of things to do, itís a hidden gem of an area.

Not sure we would return due to the lack of amenities in the area and needing to drive to anything off site apart from the miniature railway.

We do like to be able to wander to a pub, cafe, park or shop. Personal choice though. The narrow lane on approach can feel a bit scary but itís ok as thereís passing places.
